Abstract (Document Summary)

Robert Paolicchi, principal of Wheaton's Franklin Middle School, attributes academic success to the "dedication of the staff and a willingness to pursue every child."

The school is one of 287 public and private elementary schools in the nation named as winners of the U.S. Department of Education's 1987-88 School Recognition Program for excellence in student success, curriculum, school philosophy, school leadership and school climate.

Franklin, 211 E. Franklin St., offers a diverse curriculum of 11 elective subjects in addition to a basic curriculum for its 539 6th, 7th and 8th graders. For its few youngsters who lag behind, the school encourages parents to enroll their children in a special "study skills" program. In that program last year, the number of failing subjects was reduced to 3 from 40 for 11 participating pupils.
